What People Say

Before I found Global Mandarin, I tried various books and online resources. A lot of these were not very helpful without a teacher. Website videos were sometimes useful but I felt that working with a good teacher was what I really needed.
I decided to start a Global Mandarin course and I am happy to say that I made the right decision.
I follow a course book with a good teacher on Skype. On Skype I can keep a record of text that my teacher writes during lessons and I can listen again to her voice to check vocabulary and pronunciation. Writing Chinese characters and reading the tones correctly from the pinyin might be difficult for beginners. On Skype, Chinese characters can be saved and used with computer software and dictionaries. After lessons, I can then practice writing some Chinese characters. On Skype, it is also possible to listen again to the words as pronounced by your teacher. For me it is much easier to copy my teacher reading words than it is to read pinyin correctly with the tones without listening.
I now look forward to having many more lessons with Global Mandarin as I can already feel a big improvement in my level.
I would like to say that my lessons are well structured and planned. Esther my Primary teacher is patient and understanding and delivers the lesson in a professional manner i enjoy the lesson and feel that i am progressing well. i would not hesitate to recommend your school to any one interested in learning Chinese, also i have the lessons saved so at any time i can refer to them for my homework and additional learning which i find a great benefit one last point i would like to make is the price is very affordable not expensive at all. i hope this information is helpful and thank you,
